Although we were in the greatest city on Earth for some pleasure, we were mostly there for business.

Sallie and Clark’s wedding was on Saturday, Oct. 1st in Stamford, CT – just a 45 minute car ride from the Empire State Building. Stephen and I headed up on Friday with a car full of beautiful flowers. The wedding was outdoors, on the grounds of the pretty little church where the bride and groom attend.

Sallie is wonderfully laid-back and gave me completely control over choosing colors for the wedding as well as the flowers themselves. All she knew was that she wanted it to be an “autumn wedding”. Although I love fall weddings, my desire was to do something different from the traditional gold+orange+brown that is usually done. I went with an array of colors with a couple of key jewel-toned pieces to anchor the concept. Her bouquet was a mix of calla lilies, roses, eucalyptus, spray roses and leaves.

For the centerpieces, I used an assortment of natural baskets and milk glass as containers. Not a single centerpiece was alike, which I think added interest to the reception. The day was wonderful and I am so thankful that both Stephen and I got to be a part of it!
